Mod_python error: "PythonHandler mptest"

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/mod_python/apache.py", line
287, in HandlerDispatch

  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/mod_python/apache.py", line
461, in import_module
    f, p, d = imp.find_module(parts[i], path)

ImportError: No module named mptest

do i have to set any path?
I am using the global apache configuration file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
added the following lines to it
AddHandler python-program .py
PythonHandler mptest
PythonDebug On
from mod_python import apache

def handler(req):
    req.content_type = 'text/plain'
    return apache.OK

using the latest version of mod-python, working on fedora core 1 with
apache 2.0.4
